Queen’s Accolade for Phonics Teaching and Reading

We are delighted to report that Queen’s is amongst the top 5% of Primary Schools for phonics teaching in the whole country.  This has been recognized by a personal letter from Schools Minister Nick Gibbs MP

In a letter to Miss Bentham, which you can see in the school Reception, Mr Gibbs wrote “I am writing to convey my warmest congratulations to you, your staff and your pupils for the very high standard of achievement…..I was delighted to see your results”.  He went on to say “Your school is in the top 5% of all primary schools in the country”.  He underlined the importance of the results by stating “You have ensured that your Year 1 children have a firm foundation in reading, from which they can develop further and become increasingly fluent readers”
